Once in  a while you hear stories through the EMS grapevine that EMS crews
were  sanctions for bypassing local regional hospital and taking the wild risk
of  doing diret transport to the Level 1 Trauma Center (this can only happen in
 certain regions near Montreal and Quebec city)

When I  came back from the States 1988
Their were no Board recognised Emergency  Physicians that were allowed to
exercise as such (McGill Univ has the 2nd  oldest EM program through)
Basicaly, I found that the GPs did not trust  themselves and there emergency
medicine very much (and rightly  so)


Did not trust their nurses  either (French Quebec nurses have clearly less
autonomy than their Anglo  counterparts)


They absolutely did not trust the  "Ambulance Drivers"
